Pro Athlete WR-Donald Fusilier IFL Indoor Football League WICHITA WILD
Fuse Wichita Wild

Name: Donald Fusilier   Position: WR/DB/KR/PR Height: 6ft 1in Weight: 195 lbs Date & Place of Birth: Aug.10, 1984 New Iberia, LA Major: Health & Physical Education  GPA: 3.57 Yrs Attended: Spring 09-10 Current Residency: Lafayette, LA Cell: 225-933-2305 Email: fuse337@yahoo.com HS: Westgate  New Iberia, LA. Division: NAIA/D2  College: Lindenwood University Address: L.U. 209 S. Kings Hwy Saint Charles, MO 63301 L.U. Coach: Patrick Ross Marketing & Publicity: David Mims 313-624-MIMS (6467) Det2LA@yahoo.com


Donald Fusilier was born and raised in New Iberia , LA until he and his family moved to Lafayette, LA at age 9. Fusilier started playing football at the age of 10 in Lafayette, LA.    His dream as a child was to play college football and then play in the NFL. He didn’t get recruited out of high school due to lack of exposure.  Fusilier used it as motivation and believed that he would eventually play collegiate football. At Westgate High School he was a Team Captain, and lettered in football, basketball, and track.  Fusilier graduated from the 1st senior class at Westgate and was apart of the 1st team to win a district basketball championship in school history. He graduated from Westgate in 2002 in the top 50 of his class with a 3.3 GPA, but wasn’t a qualifier. He enrolled at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux , LA during the fall of 2002 and did not play sports. While at Nicholls, Donald also became a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated. 
When introduced to Semi-Pro Football, the Lafayette Hurricanes in Lafayette , LA  gave Donald hope to play football again. Donald researched and discovered that Semi-Pro/ Minor League Football was designed for athletes like himself, and would provide him with a second chance at a college football career. Fusilier moved back to Lafayette in November 2007 to pursue his football career, at age 23 and four years removed from high school. Donald learned the system quickly and instantly became a starter.  Fusilier helped lead his team to the Championship game and won 10-3 with his game winning touchdown.  Fusilier had another successful season for the Louisiana Hurricanes and played in the League Championship June 6, 2009, which was his final game. Donald used his semi pro film to get recruited by various colleges and chose Victor Valley College . Coach Hardy of www.Chosen1Sports.com and Coach Mims ofwww.MusclesInMotionSystems.com provided Donald with options to make this great choice. Fusilier became a starter and team captain for the Victor Valley Rams. They finished the season with a 6-4 record. He closed his career at Victor Valley College with a 7 catch, 121 yd, and 2 td performance and also caught the game winning touchdown in a 4-OT thriller vs. Mt. San Jacinto College. Fusilier received calls from numerous colleges to transfer and learned his eligibility clock was running out. His enrollment at Nicholls State University and semester at Victor Valley gave him 9 full-time semesters. Because of NAIA rules he was able to transfer to Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO. He will play one season as a senior and is a leader and mature athlete at the age of 26.
Lindenwood University opens the season ranked #2 in the NAIA National Poll and has recent success at the receiver position from the 2009 team. Roren Thomas and Marcel Thompson got invites to NFL Camps. Donald is prepared to continue this wave of opportunity for the next level.
Donald is excited about the opportunity to succeed and overcome adversity. He dedicates this season to his mother, Ms. Mary Leisa Fusilier, who passed away a week before his birthday on August 3, 2010.  Donald is using the loss as motivation for his continued success. Fusilier is a proud parent of daughter, Saniaya Andrea Fusilier, who was born on May 30, 2007. Lindenwood finished the season recently on Saturday, November 20, 2010 with a 46-38 last minute loss in the First Round of the NAIA Championship Series at the hands of the Saint Francis Cougars. Donald didn’t have the productive season like he wanted ,due to issues with being at Lindenwood for only his senior season. The quarterback was more comfortable with the guys that were there before him. Donald Fusilier started all 11 games for the Lindenwood Lions in 2010 and was targeted 23 times.  He is looking forward to off-season workouts and a future as a professional ball player. Donald participated in a few all star games, including the www.AllAmericanBowl.com @ the Metrodome on Dec 18, 2010.

Each year the Louisiana Hurricanes visit the Pediatric floor of Lafayette General Hospital.  This year we were fortunate that there were very few children in the hospital during the Christmas holidays.  We brought gifts for those who were in the hospital and for their siblings.
